    2005 Acura Rsx With Type-s Interior — I owned this car before my 04 STi and it was a great car all around. I got it automatic for commuting and I love how comfortable it feels/drives, but it lacks the power I like to have in a car. The 160 HP is not horrible, but I always had to wonder if I was going to be able to pass someone....not fun.

    Pros: Leather interior, comfortable ride, looks great

    Cons: Not quick

    2005 Rsx Type S — Performance: Over all, 10/10, nothing more I could ask from a stock K20Z1. Build Quality: No complaints, at all. Appearance: One of the best looking sport coupe's out there, interior is flawless. Cost of Ownership: Not bad at all, should run on 93 octane gas though as most sportier cars should Fun Factor: 10/10, extremely fun to drive.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Everything, what's not to like?

    Cons: Nada!

    Great Car, Attractive And Smooth To Drive. — I needed a car because my car was stolen and stripped. I searched for an RSX because I saw it at the Milwaukee auto show when they first came out in 2002, stopped making them in 2006. and said right there, this is my next car! This is a 2005, has all the extras you would want on a car, beautiful color and body style. I love the design of the front and rear lights, I think they look cool. I have only driven this car about $5,000 miles, partially because I have another car, and partially because I have only had it about 14 months, and partially because I quit working about 12 months ago, so I no longer had a commute to work. There is nothing wrong with this car, everything works great, I have enjoyed driving it, felt safe in it and it was fun to drive to. I am only selling it because I have a Miata which is great in this warm climate and I can have the top down a lot. I have tried to keep both because I love both of them, but it is no longer practical. Therefore, I have made the decision to keep the convertible and sell the Acura.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: This is a 5-speed manual transmission: the smoothest shifting car I have ever had, breaking and acceleration excellent, reliable, nice pick-up with 160 HP VTEC engine.

    Cons: I do not have any cons about this car.
